[Snort-devel] Trying to get SNMP traps from Snort

Thanks! You were correct in that I saw the error message. My only other
question is that I was using that to cause the alert file to be created.
Is there a way that I can still get that file via snort.conf? I don't
seem to see anything about it there. I use to to upload to ARIS. If not,
ARIS now has a xml upload function, so I can use that, but it was nice
having an easily human readable file on the local machine.

Length is fine - try running
/bin/snort -A FULL -c /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf -deX -i dc0 -z \

( without the -D switch )

I think you will see a warning about "command line options overriding
config file logging"

Then try running without the -A FULL and instead only use logging
options in the config file.
